Beautiful piece. Cheers to all the parents out there who send their kids into life with love.

From everything I've heard from Waters himself and from other folks who grew up around Lutherville Md, his parents were some of the most wonderful people out there. Despite coming from a traditional middle-class Catholic family, they really went all out to support John's passions. I remember hearing an NPR interview with John Waters where he noted his parents were in fact the main contributor towards funding Pink Flamingos.
